Gad’s Nursery, Kindergarten and Junior children came together to celebrate harvest time, with a concert and presentation of donated food to a local outreach charity.
Students as young as three performed a selection of songs, poems and readings about what harvest means to them and to people all over the world.
Gad’s Head of Modern Languages, Miss Sophie Batther and her year one and two classes gave a rousing rendition of Spanish melody ‘El Baile de la Fruta’.
As well as showing proud parents their language and vocal skills, older Juniors spoke about their studies on Hydroponics, the science of growing plants without soil.
After the concert, Headmaster Mr Paul Savage thanked the children for their enthusiasm and talent before announcing that Gad’s children had collected more than 3,500 items for ‘Caring Hands in the Community’.
A representative from the Medway aid organisation gratefully accepted the donation and explained how the children’s and their families generosity would help the charity.
‘Caring Hand in the Community’ has a purpose built kitchen facility which delivers an average of 250 meals and snacks each day to those most in need in the community.
Thank you to all the children and parents who kindly donated food for the harvest celebration.
